Are you looking for a manual for a young lady that will teach all that she needs to know about being the type of girl that God has designed her to be? If so, look no further than 31 Girl by Mary Simpson. Mary Simpson takes each verse of Proverbs 31 and develops a chapter around it. Each chapter has a quote found in a secular book or film. She includes the scripture verse in New International Version format. She then tells a story about her personal life that relates to that scripture verse. Each chapter has a prayer which can be used for the girl's individual prayer time. There are treasure tips included in each section which deal with everything from nail care, face care, letting others know how much they mean to you, and pedicures, along with a lot of other helpful advice. At the end of each chapter is a story written about one of her "31 girls" with their own experiences being their guide. There are chapters about humility, serving the Lord with gladness and true beauty coming from within ourselves. This is one book that I feel is very important for every Christian girl to have. There are pictures throughout the book, which show girls having fun. There is a wide variety of poems and quotations that apply to every girl no matter if she is in her teens or twenties. Mary Simpson is very knowledgeable in the Scriptures and has created a real treasury. I had a difficult time laying this book down until I was finished with it. However, it could be taken one chapter a day just as easily. I am hoping to use this book as part of my curriculum for my young girls group at our church this fall. The rose theme is carried out throughout this book making this is a beautiful book in its content which outweighs its physical appearance. 31 Girl is a must read for every girl in their walk with their Lord.

31 Girl, by Mary Simpson, is a fantastic book. It would be excellent for a girls group study, going through Proverbs 31.10, 25-31. Each chapter opens with a short, entertaining anecdote (Having crushes on tv characters, An Ants Life, The Easiest Thing to Do is Nothing) then a true story from a girl, closing with a prayer and a "Treasure Tip." Some of the tips are Memorial Day (remember in a journal things God does for us), Laughter is the Best Medicine, etc. Most of the girls stories are about surviving physical, emotional, or substance abuse, and I wish that they had gone a bit deeper; it would have been special to relate to the girls stories a bit more personally.
It will transform your thinking

I was given this book by my cousin as I had mentioned someone had told me about proverbs 31. I wasn't expected what was to come. I had been blown away by the truth this book represents. It helps open you up to your life and how to become closer to God. It's magical as when you read the chapters and the females stories you can relate to their internal struggle of being a young female in mordern times and how they are often lost into material and worldly pleasures. However with the grace of God became who they are destined to be.
